The unforgivable offense of self-defense

Once again, we are being reminded that the single most offensive thing that Israelis can do (besides exist) is to try to protect themselves. In Europe, officials are forbidding El Al — Israel’s national airline — from flying to certain airports. Their objection is that the airliners are equipped with a missile-defense system, to protect them from terrorists who might try to shoot down the planes.

The Europeans say that the defense system could cause injuries on the ground, either from diverted missiles or the flares the system ejects.

After all, the idea that terrorists would ever try to shoot down an El Al plane is simply ridiculous…
